The three values for LABiometryType are:


the name for the last entry seems inconsistent -- should be just "FaceId"

fyi link to apple's doc https://developer.apple.com/documentation/localauthentication/labiometrytype

Ouch, I am the one to blame on that one, unfortunately that ship has sailed and we can't change it because it would be a breaking change :(

I will add the fix and add it under XAMCORE_4_0 so when the next breaking changes round happens it is fixed. Thanks Craig.

It's an enum so we can expose a new `FaceId` one (we just can't removed the existing one).

I'll include this while updating the LocalAuthentication bindings for Xcode 9.2
